The paper describes the energy consumption processes in a public transport system and identifies areas where savings can be made. An assessment is undertaken of the cost of achieving energy savings, the effectiveness of those savings and a priority proposed for realising them. The paper also discusses the role of different fuels and the trends in future availability. From this proposals are made for changing fuel sources, to make public transport less vulnerable to market price fluctuations.
